Indoor Bowls – City Oval Bowling Club


Congratulations to Dorothy Mahony the new ladies Indoor Bowls Club Champion.

The BIBBA competitions are over for another year (although check the board for tournaments). It has made the cooler months enjoyable with some great competiton.

The mens DIV4 team were the only side to make the finals.

Whilst there was a core of players the DIV 4 side did have to recruit some super subs during the season. Thanks to all that participated.

With only five sides in the comp we had expected finishing 4th but to every ones surprise we endded up in 2nd place. Buninyong was a formidable oppenant and the semi finals went to the wire requiring an extra end. Both teams scored 1 shot for an overall win and into the grand final.

Buninyong was again our opponent for the Grand Final. Max’s team started with a charge whilst Lloyds was slow and steady with many ends only single shots by either team. Max then dropped a 5 and Lloyd dropped a couple of 3s…..but did not give up finally overtaking to win by two shots. Due to a penalty end (will not mention who took the Jack off) Max was a liitle behind.  With one end to go the total score was even. Whoever won this end was the Champions. It was bowl for bowl and when the skips went to bowl we were two up. Boths skips 1st bowl were close but did not change the head. Then Buninyong hed the shot. With the last bowl of the game Max delivered the perfect shot just nudging out the opposition bowl for shot.
